WORKING WITH US
Working Together at all Phases of Construction
Advanced ESI can work with you at any stage of your building or remodeling project–even after you’ve finished decorating.
Wherever you are on your project timeline, Advanced ESI is ready to help. The best time to call is in the early stages, since all options are open then and we can do absolutely anything. As the project progresses, there are some limits on what can be done, but it’s never too late for us to incorporate great audio and video into the decor of your home. Here is a general guide to what we can do at different stages of construction.
Planning and Design This is the ideal time to begin working with us. If you don’t have blueprints yet, you might find we have ideas that could influence your plans. If you have your blueprints, we can plan the perfect system for any part of your home. Anything is possible!
Beginning Construction This is still an excellent time to begin working with us. Don’t wait too long, though. It’s best when we can begin work right after the electricians, so we’d like to complete our planning with you before that stage. That keeps all your options open, and ensures that we can accomplish all your home entertainment objectives.
Pre-Wire Phase This is the time for us to begin our installation work. It’s best for the planning to have already been completed. If it hasn’t been, and you’re just bringing us in, we’ll move as quickly as we can so you’ll have as many options as possible.
Drywall Phase By this phase there are some limits on what we can do, but we can still work with existing rooms. Stud placements are fixed, and it is harder to run certain wires. It is still better to involve us here than at a later stage, since it is easier to patch drywall when cuts are required.
Post-Construction Depending on the construction of your home, there will be some limits now on what can be done without major work. Even so, we have found that there are great options for almost any home even after construction is completed. There may be some limits, but anything we can do will still come out looking and sounding great!
Completely Decorated Even after you’ve finished decorating it’s not too late for us to do a complete system installation customized to your home’s new look. We’ll come in, do the work, clean up, and it will look like we were never there. The only difference is that you’ll have incredible sound and video in that same decor.
